Although the rats' blood pressure levels in recovery remained normal, higher-than-normal blood pressure responses to angiotensin II may increase the risk of developing high blood pressure.
Another example of new codes in Table XWO is Giapreza, an FDA-approved synthetic human angiotensin II used to raise the critically low blood pressure in a patient with septic or other distributive shock, which can affect blood flow to vital organs.

However, recent evidence suggests a potential benefit of type 2 angiotensin II (Ang II) receptor (AT2R) stimulation for improving both lipotoxicity and hyperandrogenism.
Pressure overload and cardiac hypertrophy share common inducers (e.g., endothelin and angiotensin II) that activate downstream matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs, such as MMP2 and MMP7) and a disintegrin and metalloproteinases (ADAMs, such as ADAM12 and ADAM17) via activating Gq protein-coupled receptors [2, 5-7].

A previous study in adult rats also revealed that myocyte stretching that mimics volume overload can induce angiotensin II synthesis and myocyte apoptosis, which could then be abolished by angiotensin II type I receptor blocker [6].
